What is home insurance?

Blue umbrella icon

Home insurance helps cover the cost if something happens to your home or your belongings. You pay us a premium so if something goes wrong, we might be able to help put it right.

What types of home insurance are there?

Do I need home insurance?

If you own your home and have a mortgage, most mortgage lenders will insist that you have buildings insurance.

You don’t need contents insurance to get a mortgage for your home. But it’s a good idea to make sure the things you care about are covered.

We’re here to help

If you're looking for help with a policy you already have with us, go to manage your policy. It tells you how to get in touch with us if you want to make a change, renew or cancel your policy.

If you need to make a claim on your policy, you can do that online.

Remember, if you get your quote over the phone it won't have the 10% discount you get for applying online.
